Laser treatments are an important technique for a cosmetic surgeon. Used properly, they can tighten and smooth skin by promoting the formation of collagen. Now there's a new development in laser cosmetic surgery technology -- the Clear + Brilliant® laser -- that promises to make laser therapy convenient and easy for everyone.
WHAT IS CLEAR + BRILLIANT®
Clear + Brilliant® is a non-surgical procedure that uses a laser to lightly burn the skin, resulting in tighter, firmer skin and a healthier, younger look when it heals. Traditional laser treatments can cause unwanted reddening and swelling that can take a while to heal. But Clear + Brilliant® uses precision targeting and a low-powered fractional laser to minimize side effects and discomfort. You'll heal faster and be able to enjoy your refreshed skin sooner! And since it only takes half an hour or less, it's easy to fit a Clear + Brilliant® session into your routine.
BENEFITS OF CLEAR + BRILLIANT® TREATMENT
Since Clear + Brilliant® is gentle and non-invasive, it's safe for almost every patient. Keep in mind that its effects are subtle but noticeable. It won't make a dramatic change in your looks, but it does provide a healthy, youthful glow to the skin. Patients have reported "looking and feeling younger" after Clear + Brilliant® treatments.
Clear + Brilliant® can be used as a regular part of your skin-care regimen, or as a single treatment to make sure you look your best for an important event. Of course, regular treatments will help ensure that you get the best results and maintain the fresh look of your skin as long as possible.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT LIKE
A Clear + Brilliant® treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete. It may be preceded by the application of a light numbing cream to the face to ensure that you are more comfortable.
The physician will pass the laser handpiece over the area to be treated for about 15 or 20 minutes. The laser treatment may be followed by an application of antioxidant cream or moisturizer to help refresh and protect the treated skin.
And that's all it takes. There should be no downtime afterward -- no having to wait for redness or swelling to clear. The benefits of the laser therapy will appear over the next few days as your skin heals.
